John Warren and Henry Mc Master head to runoff

In Tuesday's primary, he lost to state Representative Katie Arrington, who had campaigned against Sanford by branding him a "Never Trumper".

With 98% of the vote counted, U.S. media called the race for state representative Katie Arrington, who led Sanford by 50.5% to 46.5%. With much of the vote counted, state Rep. Katie Arrington was on the cusp of winning outright.

SC is an open primary state, meaning you don't have to be a registered member of a party to vote in it's primary. U.S. Rep. Tom Rice faces a Republican challenger along with Sanford.

Women will represent Democrats in all four of Virginia's competitive House races in November, the latest example of the party turning to women to unseat vulnerable Republicans in the Trump era. The onetime insurgent has made allegiance to his leadership a litmus test in many Republican races.

Jeff Malet Photography/NewscomTuesday's primary results were bad for Republicans in general, but even worse for those on the right who dare to criticize President Donald Trump. But during the campaign, he ran ads saying how often he voted with the president.

"He is MIA and nothing but trouble", Trump said. The president himself weighed in by stoking memories of the affair, tweeting that Sanford was "better off in Argentina".

Sanford has also split with own party, perhaps most notably in this coastal district, on human contributions to climate change.




"Unlike you, Mark has shown humility in his role and a desire to be a better man than he was the day before", Amash said on Twitter.

More than most Republicans in Congress, Sanford has been an outspoken critic of Trump's policy and rhetoric. A Sanford loss would be an abrupt end to a roller-coaster political career that included a resignation as South Carolina's governor following his admission of the affair. After serving three terms in the House, he later served as governor for eight years, but his tenure was marred by his disappearance for several days in 2009. "Of course I've been to the White House to see him a number of times to talk about business for SC".

Nevada and North Dakota are home to two of the most pivotal Senate races this year. Roby was forced into a July runoff with a fellow Republican who attacked her for abandoning Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign.

The victor of the Democratic race is expected to face Republican state Attorney General Adam Laxalt in November.

Turnout was generally light, a state election commission spokesman said early Tuesday afternoon.

The GOP nominee faces him in November. Heidi Heitkamp, at the 2018 North Dakota Republican Party Convention in Grand Forks, North Dakota, April 7, 2018. Former Rep. Cresent Hardy is the Republican frontrunner in a six-person race, while former Rep. Steven Horsford is expect to win the Democratic nomination after incumbent Ruben Kihuen announced he wouldn't seek reelection in response to sexual misconduct allegations.

State and national Republicans admitted there's virtually no chance Stewart will defeat Democratic Sen. He somewhat improbably won election to Congress a few years later.
